When is the best time to start my vaccination program?

There are two ideal times of year to start a customized vaccination program: spring and fall. Fall breeding season and weaning time is an excellent opportunity to  initiate the program. During spring, you also have an excellent opportunity to vaccinate yearling bucks and pregnant does.

What is a booster shot and when is it given?

A booster shot is a second dose, given 2 to 4 weeks after the initial dose of vaccine. After these first two doses, you will begin a bi-annual booster schedule.

Bi- Annual Vaccine Program

When to begin bi-annual boostering will depend on when you initiate your vaccination program. If you begin your vaccination program in the fall, your bi-annual booster shot will be given the next spring. If starting your vaccination program in the spring, administer the bi-annual booster shot in the fall. Continue to vaccinate your herd once in the spring and once in the fall each year.

Can the vaccine be delivered remotely??

Both of our vaccine products can be delivered via dart. The recommend dart configuration is the dose quantity listed on the bottle, equipped with either the ½ inch gel collar or ¾ inch tri-port dart. Our vaccines can be delivered in either a Sub-Q injection or intramuscularly.

What type of things should I look for to determine if I need to vaccinate my animals?

Generally, if mortality in any age class is over 10% on an annual basis from any type of bacteria-related issue, a vaccination program is warranted.

What are some of the benefits I should expect to see?

The most common benefits of a solid vaccination program are seen in the youngest animals, up to 18 months of age. Younger animals, specifically fawns, have a developing immune system, and are the most susceptible to infection and mortality caused by harmful pathogens. On many occasions, cervid operations implementing our recommended vaccination program see their mortality rates reduced by as much as  80%  when compared to pre-vaccination mortality rates.

Do fawns need to be vaccinated if I did my does prior to fawning?

There is no simple answer to this question. Many farms have seen benefits from vaccinating their fawns post birth, at 24-48 hours old, and again at 14-21 days old. Using a long-handle net to capture fawns is an excellent opportunity to quickly examine the animal for navel infection, sound hooves, mouth abscess and loose fecal matter.

If my animal is sick will this help?

No. Vaccines are a preventative measure. Administering a vaccine to an animal with an already challenged immune system could cause additional issues.

Will this vaccine work in my area?

Yes. Cervid Solutions’ Pneu-Vac 2 and Eco-Vac products are used in regions all over the United States.

Open Order price for Pneu-Vac 2 is $260 per 50 dose bottle.
